Delete a student's submission

1. Introduction

This guide contains information for staff about deleting a student's Turnitin assignment submission. For example, if they submitted the wrong assignment by mistake.

This is best done before the assignment due date, as this is the point at which the student's assignment will be added to the Turnitin database and will match against future submissions. 

If the due date has already passed, please contact us in the Digital Learning Services, we can ask Turnitin to delete the paper from their database.

2. Delete a submission

Important: Once a submission has been deleted, it cannot be retrieved.

a. In a module, turn Edit Mode ON and find the Turnitin assignment. Click View Assignment.

b. A list of student submissions appears.

c. Click the bin at the end of the row containing the submission you want to delete.
